When the weather gets chilly, we enjoy comfort foods like this hearty chowder. It's easy to prepare, and the aroma of it as it simmers makes my mouth water. —Sheena Hoffman, North Vancouver, British Columbia

"My husband and I really liked this and I can't wait to make it again!! I left out the bacon and chose to add more veggies instead. I added broccoli, peas, green beans as well as some other seasonings to give it a little kick! I also substituted skim milk for the whole milk. It was delicious, fillings and healthy!! It was perfect on a cold winter night with a grilled cheese."

"I cut the amount of cheese to about half of a choice and left out the bacon. It was more like a potato soup with some other veggies in it. But it was filling and decent tasting."
